#OutdoorNation

In High Ropes Course on October 8, 2014 at 10:42 pm

As a part-time staff member of George Mason University — working at a challenge course called THE EDGE — I’m a part of a team that’s competing in a competition to get outdoors. I can’t think of a more healthful and pleasant way to enjoy the fall season.

Here are a few images taken so far to document my outdoor activities. (Excuse the fact that these are all “selfies.” This is a condition of the contest and there are a lot of college-aged young adults participating along with those of us who may be called “boomers” or who attended the “Un-college”)

We "pushed" 150 climbers over our Alpine Tower today. Students are in the bleachers waiting for their buses.
